Plus Size Clothing Swap
October 30 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
The Plus Swap is an annual clothing swap for plus-size people in the Greater Philadelphia area. Participants purchase tickets to access the swap and are required to bring at least 5 items of clothing with them to contribute. In addition to clothes for swapping, the event will also have vendors and raffle tickets. The swap is a free-for-all and clothes will be sorted into sizes upon arrival. There are no individual sales between swappers and there will not be item-for-item trading. Bring your items, add them to the appropriate tables and start sorting through clothes to find your own treasurers! Guidelines for the swap are available on the Eventbrite and the Swap’s IG page, @phillyplusswap.
All Together Now PA’s Clothing and Textile Coalition will be on site to assist with mending your well-loved clothing items! Stop by their table to learn simple mending and embroidery techniques, including how to patch your favorite pair of jeans, fix a hole in a beloved fall sweater, and/or give an old item a new look with decorative embroidery! Attendees are invited to bring 1 mendable article of clothing to work on.
If you are unable to purchase a ticket due to your financial constraints, please contact the event organizer via email (email@example.com). There are several scholarship tickets sponsored for those who cannot afford tickets.
